AN ACCIDENTAL PILGRIMAGE by Frances Fritzie Ridenoure
The 45th Class Reunion of Goshen High School Class of ’62 calls Frances Fritzie back to Indiana. Though pressured by family needs, she is driven to attend and undertakes a one way bus ride from Gainesville, Florida to Grand Rapids, Michigan as part of her journey home. Along the way, Frances meets an aspect of pilgrimage: surmounting problems and preparing for whatever may come the next. As a pilgrim, she employs silence, observation, contemplation and other spiritual tools.
